Find out more about why and how the CSP conducted the PACE survey.
What was PACE about?
The PACE survey, which ran between 13 July and 7 August, was conducted to better understand the rehabilitation needs of patients with Covid-19.
Any CSP member was able to complete the survey – physiotherapists, associate members and students. Only Covid-19 patients were included in the initial project, although more rehabilitation patients could be included in further phases.
What patients were included?
- All adult patients with a Covid-19 diagnosis being rehabilitated outside of an acute inpatient hospital setting anywhere in the UK.
- Each patient was only included once.
Who completed the survey?
- Any CSP member was able to complete the survey - physiotherapists, associate members and students.
- If a patient was seen by multiple members of staff, there should have been local agreement of who filled in the survey for that patient.
- The survey took roughly 5 minutes to complete.
- Only Covid-19 patients were included in the initial project although more rehabilitation patients could be included in further phases of the project.
- Data collection could not be mandated.
- NO patient, member or organisation-identifiable information was collected or shared.
- The data gathered was stored and presented by the CSP in accordance with GDPR.
- The platforms did not link to existing electronic patient records nor were data submissions accepted from these systems.
- No new devices were provided for CSP members to collect this data and the expectation was for them to use their own existing devices (professional and/or personal).
